BUTTE, MONTANA, DECEMBER 15,1926

Mines Tearn Ends Successful Season After Poor Start Spurt to Strong Finish. FootBall Review by "Nig" Warren. The Miners got off to a poor start, dtopping their first three games. The fans in Logan, Utah, branded the light Mines team as the wildcats from Butte. They dropped a 29-0 defeat at the hands of the strong aOcky Mountain contenders. The team has the honor of cherishing an e~etlasting alliance with the Utah Aggles due to the clean sportsmanship for which the Mines is known. Coach 11:cAuliffe obtained an early season line on his boys in this game. Twentyone men made the trip and every man had the chance to show his stuff. The 6-0 defeat by the Anode IndelJendents will always be history, for the services of a civil engineer were l'eqUired to verify the touchdown. The accumulation of beef on the Anode line figured easy picking but every man on the Anaconda team realizes the scrappy spurt showed all season by the Midgets. .

and came back strong and administered to Intermountain a 27-16 defeat. It may be well to mention here that the Mines team' possesses a letter from the Intermountain Panthers admiring the team for their clean sportsmanships in the game with them at Clark Park. Spokane University journeyed from the Washington city with a series of victories tucked away. They were all set on another but the Mines still cherished that spirit which their coach had put over in their last game. The Midgets handed their heavier opponents a 14-0 defeat. The Miners used the second string against the Teachers from Dillon and handed them a 14-0 defeat. Practice before the game had been light, since the Ore-Diggers were at a serious loss awaiting the recovery of their coach, who was ill. Steve Sullivan of Butte Central, was called upon to handle the situation and endeavored to make the last game a victory. Steve was well rewarded for his work, since the subs brought in the season's last bacon.

Silver Crisis Threatened India May Cause Downfall of White Metal. India, that British-ruled Asiatic nation, with her millions of people, her fine spices, her precious jems; and because of this, ever the goal of the early adventurers and merchants, today, has much the same command over precious metals as she formally had when foreign ships visited her ports to partake .of her wealth. Her command over precious metals is in a different form than that it once was, however. India is the largest buyer of white metal-silver-in the world. Her monetary system is based ori a silver standard-her coinage is largely silver. During periods of great market depressions and exceedingly low silver prices, India never lost faith in the white metal, but remained a consistent buyer. But we are now con(Continued on page Eight)

THE High School Championship (Continued

from page

One)

City and Dawson County of Glendive, played a scoreless tie in their first encounter of the season. After DawSOn eliminated Wolf Point, the two met again, Custer this time winning a decisive title to the district honors. Bavre and Miles City tangled with each other at Great Falls on N overn?er 13, with the Northerners makIng the breaks to win 27 to 6 though Custer made greater yardage gains. The races in the Southern and Western districts were confused considerably by the withdrawal of leading elevens because of ineligible men. Billings, always a prominent contender in the South Montana section, was SUspended last year. Dillon, Anaconda, and Butte Central each in turn found that they had been using one Ormore ineligibles and withdrew. Just before the championship game Billlings protested a Missoula player and thus unearthed the fact that there were two culprits on that team. This Protest came too late to force MisSOulaout of the final game but added to the difficulties of the School of Mines in arranging the eliminations. Butte in the Southern district won a clear title by defeating Dillon 3 to o and by squeezing out a bare 7 to 6 win over Livingston. The Purples also had a long run of victories over Western district elevens of the class of Anaconda and Central. In the Bitter Root section of the Western district, Missoula emerged a winner and then triumphed over Whitefish Which cleaned up the Flathead sector. The successive withdrawals of AnaCOnda and of Butte Central threw Missoula against Philipsburg for the district title and the Bitter Rooters ~ade it a runaway. Against Butte In the inter-district game at Missoula, the field was snowy and slippery, the Weather being particularly wretched. Neither team could score, but, acCOrding to Prof. Scott of the School Of Mines, Missoula had a clear mar?,in in yardage made and so went on Into the finals against Havre. Bad weather early in the week and the question whether Missoula might not withdraw in favor of Butte agi~ated the days preceding ThanksgivIng. Havre arrived in Butte the Sunday preceding and Coach Morris, Principal Shirley, and the eighteen lllembers of the team were royally entertained by various Butte people. Missoula came the day before the :hampionship contest and could join In only a theater party given by Manager Billy Sullivan of the Rialto. ThanksgiVing proved to be a fine day for football, but the crowd at Clark Park ran smaller than usual. ood sized delegations from both avre and Missoula made the trip to Butte, both running special trains to aCCommodate their rooters. Butte fans Were pulling largely for the Northerners, this result coming partly from the natural sympathy for the Sll1alIer institution and partly from the argument over Butte's chance to go into the finals.

the count at 13 to 13. Both elevens held during the remainder of the period but as the final session started, Dow for Havre, dashed over sixty, yards to put his team again in the lead. Twice Missoula almost scored, being held once for downs almost on the Havre goal line and the second time a potential touchdown turned into an opponents' score when Mayer, Havre end, took a pass intended for a split buck and ran 97 yards to a counter. Action the last two minutes was fast and hectic. Within one minute and forty-five seconds by the timer's watch, three touchdowns were made, Havre getting one on a forward pass completed and the other on an intercepted pass while Missoula tallied on a clean pass. Few games in Butte have had so much action and interest in them as had this one. Both Coach Morris of Havre and Coach Stegner of Missoula deserve praise for the training their men received, for the exceptionally fine sportsmanship displayed, and for the high class entertainment they gave the fans. Thanksgiving evening after the game the players of both teams, the coaches, the officials, Pat Kelly of Livingston, Dr. Wilbur Beal of Anaconda, and Supt. E. A. Hinderman of Whitefish, and a few others gathered at the Finlen Hotel for turkey and all the trimmings. After everyone present was forced to discontinue eating for lack of space, Prof. Walter T. Scott informally presented the trophies for the year. To Havre went the pigskin used during the game. To Miles City and to Butte went silver cups emblematic of their district honors. Missoula received a much larger cup given for the district showing and for winning the inter-district game. Finally Havre received the big silver trophy of a football player in action which goes with state championships each year. Then eighteen Havre players and Coach Morris were awarded the gold football watchfobs that they may wear henceforth to show that in 1926 they belonged to the leading eleven in Montana high school circles. The game this year was the fifth that has been held under the general supervision of the School of Mines since the district plan was adopted. While the attendance fell below the usual expectations, in every other respect the 1926 contest was handled as credibly as were those of previous years. Both Havre and Missoula expressed themselves as being well pleased with the School of Mines management of the game and with the courtesies extended to them. .

Since both of the cheer leaders-elect were freshmen it was necessary that someone who was acquainted with the School of Mines yells' should take care of this first rally. After some persuasion "Smiggs" Murphy, last year's yell king consented to do this; and together with Archie McPhail put over a very peppy rally. Then, after an inspiring lecture by McPhail upon the need of supporting the team, the meeting was adjourned.

Bandit

Bluffing, that essential part of a modern education which is the despair of the professor and the doubtful ally of the student, has at last been proven of definite value. When a bandit presents the muzzle end of a tough looking automatic for the inspection of a Mines student he is vanquished before he starts, as was shown a few weeks ago when a thug who later

I ~~

drew headline space in the Miner as a "tender hearted bandit" attempted to hold up the "lad in greasy overalls" who has charge of Russel's filling station. We maintain that the bandit was not tender hearted, at all, but that he was outwitted by the superior intellect of the student, who, through long practice at the School of Mines, has acquired unusual skill at the bluffing game. Why accuse the holdupman of tender hearted ness in failing to take money from the cash register, when he was bluffed into believing that it was not there? Why lower his professional standing by' saying he was too kind to blackjack his victim, when he was led to believe that the victim's head was far too hard to be cracked? It is obvious from the facts of the case that the bandit has been misnamed, and that our classmate, Byron Wells, deserves a citation for using his technical education to the best possible advantage in an emergency.

Clarence Cote and Jake Brun. ner won gold medals in their class at the recent state championship bouts held under the auspices of the Elks' club. Don Mitchell, heavyweight, was awarded a silver medal after he downed last' year's champion, but "lost to Gunderson on a hairbreadth overtime decision. Mitchell carried the fight the entire three rounds and overtime period, and had the big boy groggy many times, but Gunderson connected with a hay-maker just before the final bell that slowed Mit-j chell up for a few seconds and lost him the decision.

FROSH NOTES

Since the method that had been selected for dispensing the bids was altogether' unsatisfactory, President Dennehy called another meeting December 6, to reconsider this. After a gOod deal of discussion, a plan that Seemed satisfactory to all was adopted as final, and the committees were giVen instructions to complete their WOrk as soon as possible. Judging frOm the amount of labor and discussion that have been spent in the preParation of this dance, it should be an unqualified success. I The ~ollowing teams have been seected III the Freshman Class to parf' ICIPate in the basketball tournament: F' Irst term: Dennehy (captain), COYle, Bjorgum, Whelan, Gleed and B:intalla. Second term: Foster (capt . aln), Matter, Knight, Steber, Talpt and Tiddy. Third team: Marron 1Captain), Cassidy, Hard, Wilson and tanner.

This Month's

The fall meeting of the American Institute of Mining and Metallurgical Engineers was held at the School of Mines. A business meeting was conducted in the chemistry lecture room, after which Professors Perry and Manslow addressed the Engineers in turn. Mr. Perry gave an interesting talk on oil geology, and Mr. Manslow a talk on the order of a travelogue. Mr. Parker of the Elm Orlu Mining Company gave an interesting account of the Columbia Meeting of the Engineers at Spokane, and Mr. Leggat told of the Kimberley Mining Company in British Columbia,. and exhibited some remarkable specimens of ore taken by him from that property. After the meeting the members were . shown through the buildings. Particular interest was shown in Mr. Haley's model mill. The Engineers were then served with a luncheon.

Blonde and fell flat on the floor just like linoleum. He said "Blonde be mille." And the Blonde said "Big Boy, go polish your shoes or I can never be yours." So the Big Sheik went to the city and spent the last fifteen hard-earned Yen that he had for a shoe shine, in which he could see the handsome contour of his ears, and returned to the Dazzling Blonde, saying: "Blonde, gaze upon yon shoeshine. It has demoted me fifteen Yen and consequently you must now be mine." The Blonde, being haughty and disdainful, looked the Big Sheik over, beginning at the shine on his shoes, and ending with that on his hair, and snarled in her gentle, sweet voice: "Big Boy-that does not suffice. If you would win my favor, you must not wear suspenders." The Big Boy, wishing' to secure the everlasting favor of the Dazzling Blonde, immediately gave his suspenders to the Salvation Army, but alas! he had spent his last fifteen Yen for a shoeshine and was unable to buy a safety pin with which to hold down his vest. And alas l too, there were no hairpins due to the hairpin famine which had devastated the country some years before. MORAL: There isn't any Santa Claus.

"Mining Truth.")

Zinc, formerly the despised metal hat was tossed aside as worthless, is rapidly assuming a formidable position in the metallurgical field. . In 1925 zinc sales in the form of ore, lab zinc, pigments and concentrates amounted to close to $250,000,000 and, from the record of the first six months of the year 1926 it now is apparent that the volume and the amount of zinc sales this year will eclipse those of 1925. Zinc ores are widely distributed throughout the world, but owing to h igher industrial development the United States produces .and consumes more zinc than any other country. The district known as the Tri-State, at the junction of the states of Oklah oma, Kansas and Missouri, produced one-thl'l'd of the zinc concentrates of the world in 1925 and the value of the Product was $45,000,000. For the first six months of 1926 more than 60 Per cent of the zinc concentrates conVerted into slab zinc in this country was produced by the Tri-State district. Big Foreign Demand. In 1925 over 40,000 tons of zinc concentrates were shipped to Europe from the Tri-State district while other zi Inc producing sections of the country shipPed about 25,000 tons to Europe. '1'h th ese shipments were to countries at formerly obtained their supply from the Broken Hill district of Australia. Exporting of zinc has practically ceased lately owing to the British strike diverting Great Britain's A. Ustralian ores to the continent. The zinc smelters of this country are credited with a production of 320 000 tons of slab zinc in the first six months of this year, an increase of ten PI' per cent over last year's rate of oduction. According to monthly shipments there was less than two Weeks' supply of zinc in the hands of the Smelters at the end of the six InOnths' period of the year. Where It Goes. In 1925 one-half of our domestic slab zinc was used for galvanizing P~rposes, 28 per cent in the field for aloyS such as brass making, etc., 12 ~~l' cent for use in roofing, automoles and the radio industries and the remaining 10 per cent in the manufactUre of French oxide, zinc dust and casting and for desilverizing lead.

the natural color of zinc. More than a century ago European builders discovered the value of zinc in weather-exposed construction, especially roofing. Many roofs in Europe, covered when zinc was first used, are still in good condition today. A large percentage of European zinc is used for roof construction. In Paints. Oxide of zinc forms a white metal which is extensively employed in the manufacture of paints and is considered in some respects to be superior to white lead as a base. To illustrate the uses to which zinc is adopted and how intimately we are associated with that metal, the houses in which we live are probably painted with a zinc-base paint and may be roofed, guttered and spouted with 1'011ed zinc. The brass beds that are so common are one-third zinc. The fixed and movable equipments of kitchens and dining rooms contain zinc, as do oilcloths and linoleums on floors and the shades 01) windows. Automobiles contain 4 per cent of zinc in metallic form and zinc oxide is used to increase the strength and' toughness of auto tires. Zinc enters into nearly every activ-

and yet, they will not attend. Last year there were thirty-five out-oftown students attending the School of Mines. These students, as well as the many professors, patronize the Butte merchants and thus help their business. Therefore, the business men should take more interest in the activities of the School of Mines and help to promote them. They can do this by attending the school's football and basketball games, thereby lending their financial aid. They can also greatly help the school by boosting for it and thereby lending their moral support.

There will be many basketball games played in the large Mines' ity of life.

Why aren't School of Mines' activities supported by Butte people? Is it the fault of the School of Mines students or of the townspeople? The School of Mines is rated very high among other schools of its kind in the United States. Butte people should be proud of it, and express their' appreciation of it by attending the school's football and basketball games. But they don't support these games, which means that they must not appreciate the school. In some cases the school is to blame because some of the games have not been sufficiently advertised. But even when they are well advertised the support is missing, so poor advertising cannot be the cause of poor support. The football team played three games in Butte last season, all of which it won. People who did see these games all agreed that they were high class games and that the School of Mines team furnished plenty of thrills to make the games worth the money. This brings us down to the cold facts that the townspeople know when the Mines' games are to be play· ed, know that they will be good games

l

leges both Inside and out of the state. The team will do their best to win the victories which mean so much to the school, and to each individual student who attends the Mines. Will the student body do as much for themselves? Every student who can possibly do so should attend every home game, but that is not all, for every student attending a game should come prepared to cheer for his team; Next to the team itself, good . ch eermg is an essential to every good collegiate game. The Mines has a collection of peppy yells which would do credit to any college in the country, and it is essential that every student know these yells, so that he can give real support when the cheer leader calls for them at the games.

She no longer wants a silver standard but a gold standard. Think what this will mean; a release of 700,000,000 ounces of silver to the world's markets; the conversion of the world's largest buyer of white metal into a seller. It will disturb the financial equilibrium of every nation, by reducing to a pitiful amount the value of the hoarded wealth of millions of people. It will bring on a rise in gold with its consequent era of falling prices; an era when creditors will gain and debtors lose, since it will require more of commodities to payoff a debt than was required when the debt was incurred. It will impoverish the great mass of humanity. Gold will go sky high in value; silver to the sump. Any drop in the price of silver levies a toll upon every person in America. Silver is an important byproduct of mining. It bears annually $100,000,000 of the costs of the production of copper, lead and zinc.
